I am afraid I am unable to run the breast group anymore as I had two strokes in august and was advised to look after myself and take away any stressors. No one is willing to take on the responsibility , however if there is anyone who is looking at the site would be up for the challenge please get in touch with me as I have kept all our stuff. It is sad that a group that was set up 15 years ago by a McMillan nurse and has been so successful cannot be taken on by the McMillan Breast Nurses from Ninewells. The service seems to have lost its purpose and referring everyone to Maggies in Dundee. Maggies is a fantastic service but always nice to have people in your own area. I wish you all the very best in your care and treatment.
We do intend to go for a lunch twice a year so I will put the date on the site and you would be made very welcome. Margaret
Maggie’s Dundee, Ninewells Hospital, Tom McDonald Avenue, Dundee, DD2 1NH
They are open
Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
The Breast Group intend to meet at the Mustard Seed on Monday 6 th September at 11 am for a coffee and chat so everyone welcome.
I thought it would be nice if we could meet up on Tuesday 3 rd August at Quarrymill so we can have a coffee in memory of sylvia at the benches we paid for. Everyone welcome either bring a flask or get coffee and scones at the cafe.
We have decided to meet on Monday 5 th July at 11am at the mustard seed for coffee instead of at the church . We would appreciate if you could let us know if you can join us so we can arrange seating. We will resume back at the church at the end of August.
IS ON MONDAY THE 7TH JUNE FROM 11-00 TO 1PM . WE WILL HAVE A CHAT WITH A COFFEE OR TEA AND PLAN THE WAY FORWARD. ALL MEMBERS OLD AND NEW WILL BE MADE VERY WELCOME.
Great news from the church to say we can reconvene our meetings in the church sanctuary from Monday 10 th May from 11-00 to 1-00 pm. People will need to give details on admission for track and trace and also wear masks. We will also have to complete a Covid assessment form. Safety issues will be in place for seating etc. They will also put on tea and coffee. All new members will be made welcome and we look forward to our oldies.
Well I was hoping that we would be able to meet up again soon. However due to new variants of Covid this does not look possible and until we are vaccinated it may take longer than we originally thought. I will keep you updated .
I would like to wish you all a very merry Xmas and a happy and healthy new year 2021 .
It is with regret that no meetings will be taking place due to lack of facilities. Letham St Marks Church remains closed due to COVID . Tracy will let me know once it reopens. It is important that we all remain safe and stay well.
